    Excellent program! The 2 manuals, 27 videos and 120 apprentice hours, that make up this program, prepares you to become an amazing Pilates Mat Instructor. If you are already an instructor, it deepens your anatomical knowledge, confidence and greatly enhances your teaching skills.

    The mat instructor manual starts with the history of Pilates, anatomy and physiology, postural assessments, scoliosis, mat class structure and teaching methods. It also includes a flowing 45-minute class taught by Tanya Thompson and examples of class sequences for beginner, intermediate and advanced classes.

    The repertoire manual starts with foundational exercises and maintains the essence of Joseph Pilates’ exercises while adding new EMG evidence-based developments. The manual is very detailed and includes color photos, precision instruction, breathing sequences, and regressions and progressions of each exercise to challenge all client levels from beginning through advanced. In addition to learning the mat repertoire, you will also learn small apparatus repertoire (foam roller, Magic circle, Therabands, and dumbbells).

    Although I already had my comprehensive Pilates certification prior to starting this program, I wanted to dive in deeper and increase my understanding of the anatomy in motion, muscular imbalances, lateral tilts and postural assessments. I am so glad I took the Pilates Unlimited Mat Instructor program as I learned more than I thought was possible online and it greatly expanded the clientele I’ll be able to help.

    The Pilates Unlimited mat course was one of the best choices I made for my career. As a physiotherapist, it taught me a whole different way to approach, assess and treat my patient’s and I have been getting amazing results. I would highly recommend this course to anyone looking to improve themselves as a practitioner and/or start their career as a Pilates instructor.

    This course is well organised and communication and support are excellent. I started of with the course in studio just before lockdown 2020 and there was no problems switching over to on-line to be able to finish the course. The feedback on the assessments were excellent to help improve my skill and teaching and they made sure I had my certificate in time to be handed in for the HPCSA for my CPD points. I found this rehab orientated Pilates mat course original with a creative and evidence-based approach definitely worth the time and effort!
